PRINEVILLE, OR --  Prineville tops a new statewide list, although it's likely not a ranking city officials will be bragging about. According to the website 24/7 Wall Street, Prineville is now the Poorest Town in Oregon.

 

The website looked at incorporated cities with 25,000 or fewer residents and found Prineville’s median household income of $29,959 is the lowest in the state.  Like the poorest towns in many other states, Prineville had relatively low educational attainment rates. Less than 11%, of adults had at least a bachelor’s degree, far lower than the statewide average of nearly 30%.
 
At the other end of the spectrum, Happy Valley ranked as the richest in Oregon, with a median income of $92,773.
